It’s that time of year again… the time when we make a promise to ourselves that we’ll finally hit the gym, lose weight, or spend more time with friends and family.
It’s always surprising to me that “improving sleep” does not show up on more New Year’s resolution lists. Sleep, along with exercise and diet, are part of the three “pillars of health.”
Moreover, improving your sleep may help you to reach your other goals – eating better, exercising more and/or losing weight. This is because studies have found that losing sleep is associated with increased appetite, feelings of fatigue and unhealthy dietary choices.
It may also be hard to sleep 1-2 hours more every single day. These big changes can be overwhelming, so much so that many people may just give up. I certainly have. (Let’s not count up the amount of money wasted on gym memberships)
When it comes to improving sleep, another challenge for some people may be not knowing what to do or where to start. You can always Google “sleep tips” which offer easy ways you can improve your bedroom environment, develop sleep-friendly habits and avoid sleep-damaging ones.
You might begin by keeping simple sleep diary – recording when you go to bed and when you get up. This will give you an idea of your current habits and where you may be able to improve. If you still feel you sleep poorly, even after adopting all of these strategies, you you can look to sleep aids including melatonin.
Millions of Americans rely on prescription sleep medications, called sedative hypnotics, to fall asleep. While the drugs can help people get a decent night’s rest, they are not designed for long-term use. “Each of the pills has its own risks,” says sleep expert Dr. Lawrence Epstein, an instructor in medicine at Harvard Medical School.
So if you’re struggling to get a good night sleep and traditional prescription solutions have long term negative effects, what are your options?
The solution I found that actually works is made by a new Silicon Valley start up called Liveli. Liveli is a brain health, nootropic supplement company formulated by Stanford MDs.
Liveli offers a whole host of nootropic offerings, but their most popular is their Sleep Peacefulli solution. Sleep Peacefulli is different than traditional sleep aids.
Melatonin sends a signal to the brain that the sun has set and it’s time to get ready to sleep. But that alone is not enough! We need the precursors and foundations of our main “relaxation” neurotransmitters (like serotonin and GABA), and ingredients to promote feelings of calmness and stress relief (like Ashwagandha and Valerian Root) to help us unwind and experience a restorative sleep.
Sleep Peacefulli features biomolecules that supports quality sleep. Now your body can sleep when it needs to, and wake when it’s ready. When sleep comes easy and stays sure, you can wake up refreshed and ready to be your best.
The best part, Liveli offers a 30 day happiness guarantee so its risk free!
